My internship at Mediaschneider was worth every second I spent working there. From the beginning, they welcomed me with such warmth, and I immediately felt part of the team. My mentor always made sure I was comfortable at work and with whatever task I was given. She took a keen interest in not only my professional but personal life as well. The entire team was supportive and accommodating always sparing time out of their busy schedules to teach me something. And all this was done in the most fun, friendly and hard working environment I could have ever hoped for. Working there, I acquired software skills I did not have before as well as vital knowledge about the advertising agency.
When I first arrived, I had very basic knowledge about advertising as a field. I was trained in the various work methods and within short time, I was able to fulfil the requirements of my contract as a media planner whilst performing other tasks too. I can now confidently work in an advertising agency after having gained this amazing experience. I am thankful for how the team integrated me into their group and let me become one of them; they made me a real friend and supported me with whatever I needed.
Living in a Swiss family was equally interesting, especially to see how responsible the family was by providing me with everything I needed as if I was one of them. I also got to learn quite a bit from them as they both work in the communication industry. Jeannine and Remo introduced me to things I never would have had the chance to experience back home.
Working in Switzerland was an absolute blast and I met some amazing people who have forever impacted my life in the most positive way. I am truly thankful for the experience and I want to thank B360 for according me this opportunity of a lifetime. My life will indeed never be the same from now on.
